Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, serums and/or PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to help improve the appearance of the skin. Micro-needling also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, fine lines, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
